Default New from Dynon: SkyView 14.0 Released & SV-GPS-2020 Shipping

We're excited to share two pieces of news. First, we are now shipping our 2020-compliant ADS-B Out position source - the SV-GPS-2020 GPS Receiver. We've also just released SkyView System Software version 14. In addition to support for the SV-GPS-2020, SkyView v14 includes over 30 new capabilities and improvements.

Dynon Avionics

Highlights:
  • The SV-GPS-2020 GPS Receiver/Antenna from Dynon Avionics is now shipping.
  • SkyView System Software Version 14 is available as a free download from the Dynon Avionics website, enabling support for the SV-GPS-2020 and over 30 other features and improvements.
  • Major features in version 14 include checklists, aircraft glide ring, autopilot go-around mode, improved engine status for Rotax 912 iS pilots, and more.


Dynon Avionics’ breakthrough SV-GPS-2020 is now shipping. The SV-GPS-2020 enables General Aviation’s most affordable ADS-B Out 2020-compliant solution.

The new SV-GPS-2020 GPS Receiver/Antenna from Dynon lets new and existing SkyView and Advanced AF-5000 series customers add a 2020-compliant GPS position source for ADS-B Out for only $590. As a drop-in replacement for the existing SV-GPS-250 receiver, owners of existing systems do not need to run any additional wires, coax, or install any new boxes in their aircraft.



When combined with Dynon’s SV-XPNDR-261 Mode-S transponder, SkyView and Advanced Flight Systems customers meet all the 2020 mandate transponder and ADS-B Out requirements for $2790. Pilots can also add the SV-ADSB-470 Traffic and Weather ADS-B Receiver for the best-possible situational awareness in their aircraft.

SV-GPS-2020 Software Support

SkyView v14 includes support for the SV-GPS-2020, allowing US pilots to meet the FAA’s 2020 ADS-B Out requirements when paired with the SV-XPNDR-261 Mode-S transponder. SkyView’s new GPS Fix Status page and updated FAR 91.227 Compliance Status page help you ensure that you installation is configured properly.

GPS Fix Status Page:


FAR Compliance Status Page:



Update for Continued ADS-B Traffic Reception (SIL/SDA 1 Issue)

Prior to early 2016, a SkyView system using an SV-GPS-250 as the GPS position source for ADS-B Out transmitted a SIL and SDA of 0. Beginning in 2016, a SIL and SDA of 1 is required by the FAA for the ADS-B infrastructure to transmit ADS-B traffic data to individual aircraft.

Using both internal and FAA-provided data, Dynon Avionics has conducted a rigorous analysis of the service history and field use of the SV-GPS-250 and the SkyView system as a whole. This analysis supports the use of the Dynon Avionics SV-GPS-250 as an ADS-B Position Source with a SIL/SDA level of 1. Dynon Avionics implemented the change to SIL/SDA in January 2016 as part of SkyView firmware version 14.0.

Note that this change only pertains to the SV-GPS-250. Aircraft equipped with an SV-GPS-2020 aircraft will transmit even higher SIL/SDA levels for full 2020-compliance.

More information about this issue is available in the SkyView System Installation Guide.

Aircraft Glide Ring

SkyView v14 enables the display of a wind-adjusted aircraft glide ring by utilizing aircraft performance parameters such as best glide speed, sink rate, and height above the ground:



Checklists

SkyView gains the ability to display checklists in version 14. Checklist files can be edited on any device that can edit text files. They are imported and exported like other SkyView Files.



Checklist Templates can be obtained from the SkyView Downloads Page.

Go-Around Mode

Pilots who have VNAV autopilot approach capability via a NAV radio or IFR GPS can now activate a “go-around” mode with the touch of a button. This allows the autopilot to continue to reduce the workload in a go-around situation.

When in VNAV mode, go-around mode can be activated via any of 3 mechanisms: pressing any of the Nose Up button on the SV-AP-PANEL, the AUTOPILOT > PITCH > GO AROUND button on-screen, or an optionally-connected external button. Go-around mode changes the AP lateral mode to TRK mode with the approach inbound course as the target. Pitch mode is switched to either IAS or VS mode (dependent on setup) with the default climb VS or IAS selected. An “ADD POWER” annunciation is also provided on the PFD page.

Go-Around before activation:


Go-Around after activation:



Rotax 912 iS Improvements

Most Rotax 912 iS pilots are familiar with the two EMS lamps that let them know whether an engine issue requires that the aircraft be landed immediately. SkyView v14 adds two new alerts to aid pilots in interpreting those lamps. ROTAX: LIMIT FLIGHT OP is provided for engine issues that do not require an immediate landing. ROTAX: LAND AIRCRAFT is used for issues that do require that the aircraft be landed as soon as possible. This guidance is identical to that which Rotax provides in its engine operation guide. Note that installers can still connect the Rotax ECU lamp discrete outputs to SkyView contact inputs to display the actual lamps on a SkyView EMS page.


Over 30 More Software Improvements

SkyView v14 includes over 30 more features and improvements. See the full list on the Dynon Avionics website.


Availability

The SV-GPS-2020 is available from dealers and directly from Dynon Avionics and Advanced Flight Systems. More information is available at the Dynon Avionics website.

SkyView System Software Version 14 is available now from the Dynon website software download page.

We're probably within two months of flying the project with th ethree-screen Skyview - so I guess this is a little bit of extra work we should do - get the software fully up to date!

Looking forward to seeing what it will do.

Annoucement says More information about this issue is available in the SkyView System Installation Guide.

The hyperlink works perfectly but the DATE of the v14.0 Pilot and Installation Guides is still showing 2015 (i.e., 1/13/15). But they are indeed the v14.0 for Jan 13, 2016.

Just may confuse the person who is looking for the NEW v14.0 docs and seeing the old date. Suspect this OOPS will be corrected before many people see it. (Already sent an email for Support@dynonavionics.com)

Great News though on the continuing improvements!!

Wow! The best thing I can see is the addition of checklists. I have them on my D-10A and could never understand why they were dropped. Use them every flight. I am looking forward to finishing our latest RV-12 more than ever!

Default Skyview 14 Installed

Just loaded up Skyview 14 without a problem.* It shows the transponder 91.227 as non compliant and SIL=1, SDA=1. Not sure if this is what it's supposed to be now or not. I do not have the new GPS antenna yet. (A quick response from Dynon says it will remain "non-compliant" until the new 2020 GPS is installed..Thanks Dynon!)

Mitch, that is correct. The compliance statement is to 91.227, which requires a fully ADS-B compliant GPS. You'll only see this with our 2020 GPS or another compliant GPS connected.

The GPS-250 has been upgraded from a SIL/SDA of 0 to 1, which will get you ADS-B traffic services, but is not legal in rule airspace after 2020.

Default Yup, they are shipping

I ordered my new 2020 when I saw this thread Wendsday afternoon. UPS delivered it today, 46 hours after clicking the button.

Should be about an 8 hour install, need to run two wires from the cabin top to my homemade wiring hub via the canopy brace and the Aerosport overhead. The new one will go in the old one's holes and I will relocate the old GPS a couple of feet back. Also going to put in a couple of wireless adapters.

If it ever stops raining here in Oregon, I will report back with (hopefully) with a FAA clean bill of health!

It stopped raining for a few hours on Sunday so I took my new 2020 GPS out for a drive. Got the ADSB OK almost immediaetly after lifting off and it was good until I touched down. A helicopter called in near me that did not show up. Asked him if his transponder was on and he admitted it was not. He showed up a minute later. There was some traffic in my " puck," none of it ADSB equipped. In my hanger I saw some ADSB aircraft go over. The system was showing ADSB NO RADAR in the hanger and on the ground.

The 2020 GPS is mounted on the cabin top almost right above my head. The old 250 GPS is now about about 16" behind it and is the pos 2 source. I figured it is worth about 10 cents on the used market now that the 2020 is out.

Sent away for the FAA status report in the PM and got it next AM. Perfect! Showed no errors.

Thanks Dynon, just what I expected.
